Sometimes you have to read between the lines with the quality guidelines.Google doesn't explicitly state much other than the "is not does" rule for categories in the quality guidelines, but that sums it up if you think about it.

If the category doesn't logically fit into the sentence, "My business is a .....(add category)" then it's not compliant. 

These issues will go away with the new dashboard which doesn't allow custom categories.
